Are there any shade gardens listed?
Not sure what you mean, but if you mean here on the site, select S from the alphabet section at the bottom of the page - then look for shade plants, that's probably the closest you'll get.

I think that a number of members have at least part of their gardens in the shade, as I do. Seaburngirl also has quite a lot of shade in her garden. You might find that helpful, Valerie, I hope, as I don't know of any members whose gardens are totally shaded.
Part of our garden is in shade.
You can grow loads of lovely plants in the shade you just need to establish is it damp shade or dry shade first
All woodland plants are great for shade things like ferns epimediums Heucheras heucherella and Tiarella
Tiarella is good for dry shade.
You can grow some of the nicest plants if you have shade.:)

I have a number of little plants that grow happily in shade - a few weeks ago, I had Saxifraga in flower, as well as several hardy geraniums. Convallaria majus do establish themselves after a while, too. I have Fragaria, the Chrysogonum virginianum I mentioned to you, and also Ajuga there. In the spring, various Anemone species flower. Hellebores, too, alongside my Hostas - and a lovely grass - Carex 'Ice Dance'. Don't forget Pulmonarias, either! Such a joy - and I know I haven't mentioned a lot of the plants out there in my garden.
thanks for all the great ideas Spritz. I've written down the names and will start looking them up. I have used ajuga, hardy geraniums and lot's of hostas, but the rest of what you wrote are new to me so I will investigate them.

Can't figure out how to get this off of here since I put it in twice.... I tried edit comment and did a delete, but it wouldn't go away. Oh well......
Don't worry, Valerie - we all do it! If you want any other help, please do ask - I can look up the Anemone species I have, easily. I love them! And I forgot to mention Heucherella, Tiarella wherryi and T. cordifolia, and several more plants you'd enjoy. I'll try to list them for you later. Watch this space! :-)))
Thanks spitz, appreciate your help
